Help ! Cant get front axle out of hub

I did the drivers side no problem. But the passenger shaft spline won't come out of the hubI did not disconnect the strut pinch bolt but did remove the control arm from and rear mounts. I braced the hub and I am using a drift in the center of the drive shaft with the old 12 point nut on the shaft. It is not bouncing much at all and I have used pb blaster and hitting it quite hard. I have not tried a press yet as i don't have one. Any ideas ? I live in rochester, ny the salt capital of the world. take care, DC
